Lol so like every debt equity shop in nyc?

Not really. Maybe from an hours perspective but culture wise a boutique (or very small employee based firm) is going to have much more issues than a JLL type shop.

Picture being the only or one of twoAnalyst or Associates on a brokerage team and your Principal brining multiple client deals to the table for you to underwrite, create the pitch book and all marketing materials, additional admin work, etc. without any staffing help.

Avoid like the plague. There's a reason an associate or analyst leaves every few months. The firm is like 4 years old and there isn't an original employee left. Faisal is smart but he can't lead a team.

A close friend of mine worked there for a few months last year. Literally was working IB hours for about half of IB Associate pay, Which incredibly was the problem he probably took the least issue with.
 

At the time (unsure now), Faisal didn't have a secretary or any marketing staff So you Can imagine how analysts/associates spend most of their days. Underwriting exposure was dull even though the deals were cool. Mostly changing a few if any assumptions in the excel models from the sponsors.

His biggest issue was Faisal's constantly demeaning tone and long-winded lectures to the team. Additionally, there was zero training and no senior associate or VP to learn from or bounce things off of. Long winded response but yeah I've never heard someone talk about a CRE position the way my friend talked about Lotus. Just all around bad experience where he learned very little.

I interviewed a while ago here after I left another D/E broker with a principal who is famous for his hair (if you know, you know).

The entire time Faisal wouldn't stop talking about how he made more money than the guy I used to work for. Over two conversations, one being about 30 minutes and the second being an hourish, he literally made mention of it at least 4-5 times. In the interest of full disclosure, he dinged me and not the other way around, but he definitely came off as a gigantic dick.

Wow. What is being told you you in the context of like: "Hey I make more working here – you can too!" Or just bragging for bragging's sake?
